Library Accounts

Welcome to the HSAS Library Website

The HSAS Library website is your one stop destination for finding physical and online resources available to you. To avoid confusion, HSAS students and faculty should access the library on the HSAS home page, not Lehman Library's main website because HSAS does not have access to everything featured on the main site. Scroll down to "Virtual Library" on the left-hand side, click on it and it will take you to the HSAS Library home page. There are a number of useful resources on this website, including:

  • Access to the library databases
  • Access to the library book catalog
  • Access to e-books
  • Templates of Chicago and MLA Citation styles
  • Virtual library tour

If you have any questions about the website or library, please don't hesitate to contact Debbie Quinn, the HSAS Librarian, at  

Recommended Library Databases

Students and faculty at HSAS have access to a number of Library Databases. Below are a few of the databases available to the school. The databases listed here are multidisciplinary databases, ideal for getting you started on any research paper or project.

You can find a full list of available CUNY Databases, information about how to access these databases from home, and a list of databases sorted by subject by clicking the "Library Databases by Subject" tab or by clicking here.

*You must have a registered and active library account in order to be able to login. Your library account must be re-activated every semester. If you have not activated or re-activated your library account, please stop by the Circulation Desk in the library to do so.
